Dir. Sophie Hyde. USA, 2019. 1h 49m. Starring Holliday Grainger, Alia Shawkat, Fra Fee, Dermot Murphy, Amy Molloy, Pat Shortt.

Drink, drugs, and general debauchery infuse the lives of two young women on the precipice of their thirties. As reality bites, their once solid friendship begins to fray and threatens to completely implode. Leads actors Grainger and Shawkat are a revelation in this honest and hilarious celebration of female friendships. 

‘A refreshingly nuanced take on toxic friendships. Holliday Grainger and Alia Shawkat shine in a film that treats its subjects with patience and generosity.‘ ★★★★ Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent

‘Hyde has forged a wonderful, utterly lived-in film about two women at a crossroads, one that attendees should be breathlessly, excitedly discussing around town, urging everyone else to see immediately.’ ★★★★ Benjamin Lee, The Guardian
